With the increasing weight of energy performance regulations on market uptake in the building sector, bridging the gap between scientific and regulatory approaches on ventilative cooling is crucial. As you will learn through this newsletter, venticool works on several initiatives to build this bridge. In particular, with its foreseen plenary presentations and topical sessions as well as the abstracts collected through the call, the programme of the 35th AIVC and 2nd venticool conference to be held in Poznan, Poland 24-25 September 2014 already sounds very promising. It will be a great dissemination channel for IEA Annex 62, now in operational phase, as well as a central place to discuss other initiatives including legislations and possible synergies. Also, during the 1st IEA Annex 62 Expert Meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland on April 23-24, venticool and the Annex 62 participants have agreed on a short/medium-term activities including webinars, workshops, publications, etc. some of which are detailed below. Together with its involvement in the QUALICHeCK project that addresses compliance and control issues in several areas including summer comfort, venticool is pleased to fully embrace its role of facilitator. We hope this newsletter will give you a good overview of our achievements and future work.
